Here goes with another full 40K OSR? update.
First things first - if you're wondering what a 40K OSR might be, potential definitions are here.
If you identify with the concept, and especially if you're coming up with new ideas, Colonel Kane's logo, which is here on the right, is ready to use.
If you do use it, consider giving him credit and adding Tales from the Maelstrom to your roll. The last post had a converted Rogue Trader crew member, and before that a set of four Zoats.
As ever, you can find all the most recent related posts using the 40K OSR? label.
- This time round the first piece of big news is the release of Lantz's updated AdMech FanDex; Michael at Santa Cruz Warhammer has a review and there's a short list here, my entry for this month's Army List Challenge.
- Big too was the contest at Rules Manufactorum for a 40K mini-game; the deadline might have passed, but feel free to follow up any of these ideas.
- Also at Rules Manufactorum was the first Alt40K, on snipers, plus hints for homebrew veterans and Master Bryss on points theory, parts 1, 2 and 3.
- Hungry Ghosts has more creative use of classic bits at his Chaos Squats blog, with some decorative elements, three troopers and a biker.
- While we're talking Squats, there are some of those amazing Ulkans from pegaminidesign painted up here, a couple being used as Jokaero.
For the wild card this time there's more on scaling-down from 28mm, with Tabletop Fix looking at using 15mm substitutes for Mantic's Kings of War at BoLS; the discussion covered Epic and 40K too. If you like the idea and you haven't yet, you might want to check out the possible 6mm Necrons, Squats and imperials linked up at this post.
As usual, feel free to suggest anything you think should be here, even your own posts.
Update: I've just found Codicium Aeternum, where The March Rider is converting a good-looking Inquisition force, with one mini even using a Rogue Trader-era plasma gun. Also, Nick at The Dice Abide is looking to build alternative DE grotesques.
